Foiling - what is it and what does it look like ?



What does it look like ?

The hand finished foiling is a key component of Animl By Design prints, most have this element though there are a few that don't need it. The swan and the zebra are the only prints with 3D foiling applied with a fine nozzle as per the above image the rest are hand painted. Each print is unique because this process is not factory applied, you are able to request any foiling colours that are available without extra cost. 

What colours are available ?

The following colours are available for you to select from for your print :

  • Gold 
  • Silver 
  • Turquoise 
  • Fuchsia
  • Copper  

How is it done ?

After the Giclee prints have been picked up from the printers they come back to the studio ready to hand painting the glue size on areas of the print. 

This requires over night to dry to ensure no damage to the artwork when applying foils, sometimes this process needs to happen more than once because you cannot see what the final finish will be until the foil has been applied. ( hence why 2 weeks is built in for delivery to ensure there is time for this and framing if needed)
